We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Cons
"The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""It would be helpful if there was proactive remediation.""There are items that require improvements. One is the controls from iOS.""The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""There is no catalog for mobile access management (MAM) security.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There's quite a lot of development that they can do within their Intune dashboard. I think there are too many lines hyperlinked to move you around. Others, in contrast, give you a simple dashboard and an intuitive administrative walkthrough."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits.""The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it.""The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied.""The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper.""Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based.""We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor."
